Dublin, Georgia Criminal Record Search

Dublin is located at 32°32′15″N, 82°55′6″W (32.537463, -82.918358). The town, named such because the Middle Georgia piedmont reminded Irish settlers of terrain in their native country, was founded on the Oconee river, which starts in the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains in northern Georgia before combining with the Okmulgee River to form the Altamaha, a river which then proceeds to its mouth on the Atlantic.

Because of Dublin's location as a midpoint between Savannah and Atlanta, the town in recent decades became home to a small assortment of industrial distribution centers, which complemented various industries -- textiles, furniture, and paper, among others -- that had already established themselves there in the second half of the 20th century. Historically, however, Dublin's economy was based on the local cotton, corn, and soybean trades, which blossomed as the town's central location enabled it to thrive with the growth of the railroad.

Originally, Dublin and the surrounding area was home to Native Americans of the Muskogee people, also known as Creeks. Like their brethren throughout much of the southeast, most of the Muskogee fled westward with the arrival of European settlers, many of them organizing themselves into armed resistance units, which fought government forces and white militias to protect their native territory well into the early 1800s. Ultimately, most of the Muskogee diaspora settled in what is now Oklahoma.

Despite the Irish ancestry of Dublin's first non-native settlers, the town, like most of the rest of Middle Georgia, by the late 1800s had evolved into a hodgepodge of mixed ethnicities: While area whites descended from Scotch, English and other western European immigrants, the town's considerable African-American population descended from freed slaves, most of whose roots lay in Angola and elsewhere in west Africa. By the end of the 20th century, the town had also become home to a growing population of recent immigrants, many of them professionals from India, Korea, and Latin America. As labor migrations from Mexico and Central America shifted from the southwest U.S. to much of the southeast, many immigrants from those regions also moved to Dublin in the first decade of the 21st century.

An obscure bit of Dublin trivia: The town, along with a reference to the Oconee river, is mentioned in the opening passages of James Joyce's "Finnegan's Wake." Dublin, according to a historical marker at the town's main Oconee bridge, was also one of the last encampments at which Confederate President Jefferson Davis and his family stayed before being captured by Union forces in May 1865. According to the United States Census Bureau, the town has a total area of 34.4 km˛ (13.3 mi˛). 34.2 km˛ (13.2 mi˛) of it is land and 0.2 km˛ (0.1 mi˛) of it (0.45%) is water.
